    It never occurred to me that some people might not recognize Scotty, but of course some of us had been prepared in advance:

    The 'stache is canon.

    I dont know what exactly saddens you, but it's either you love moustaches or hates CGI. I'd guess it's CGI. So many people don't like CGI these days.

    That's news to me. Just watched some on youtube. Funny. (extra funny for the repeated use by Filmation of the same sound effects and music from TAS and theur other productions :rommie: ).

    Well, sure, but when you're talking about the wide variety of styles, you wouldn't say "beard." A mustache isn't a type of beard. Sideburns aren't a type of beard.

    Whiskers just sounds...dumb. Cats have whiskers. If you were to describe a man's facial hair as "whiskers," I'd picture something very thing and scraggly coming out of his cheeks.

    Is it wrong that I sometimes wish 3rd-season Scotty had the moustache as well?

    That's no mustache, it was a Tribble that he missed transporting.

    Scotty's metabolism doesn't agree with Vulcan cuisine.

    Yeah, no other options. Or he doesn't care about the mustache and finds it silly someone would want to see it removed.

    Not to mention, those Klingon food packs were giving him a sour stomach.

    Re-read my post, please. I said he found the comment silly. So did I, but I didn't find it worth commenting on.

    Is there really a ten year gap between TMP and TWoK.

    Yes. Just like there's a three year gap between the last post and yours.

    I guess I was not the only one that thought they got a new Scotty. To 9 yr old me, he looked different.

    Of course, the real reason is it's not Scotty, it's Welshie, but we're not supposed to notice.
